Absentee ballots and early voting

Absentee Ballot (or Early Voting) Information:

  • Absentee ballots for annual meetings are available at least 20 days prior to the election.
  • Absentee ballots for presidential primary (March), state primary (August) and general (November) elections are available 45 days prior to the election.  However if the City is having a special election in August or November those City ballots may not be ready until somewhere between 20 -30 days prior to the election due to state laws.
  • Absentee ballots may be requested by filling in the absentee ballot request form or go to My Voter Page and request an absentee ballot by election or all elections in the current year or call the clerk's office at 846-4105.
  • The federal voting laws have changed and ballots will be ready 45 days prior to the election for absentee voting for federal and state elections only.  For local elections absentees are generally available 20 -30 days prior to the election day.  The absentee ballot request form is good for only 1 year.  
  • The City is unable to keep an absentee list from year to year per state law.  Each year a new request must be made for any or all elections for that current calendar year.
  • Early voting in the Clerk's office will end at noon the day before every election to give the clerk's staff the time to process the early ballots and prepare for the election
